It doesn't feel right. Huge tannin structure but not much else going on. Completely closed nose with a hint of savory earth and leather. Will revisit

Mini- #baroloboys comparison. Interestingly, the Bartolo Mascarello showed better young. Oak still needs more time to integrate on the Elio Altare. Still, a fine wine.

Complex aromas that include leather, tobacco, and stewed black fruits that have me smelling this as much as drinking the wine. Powerful and balanced, this Barolo is hitting its stride now. The tannins are tightly grained and carry a sweet spice to the finish. This is a remarkable wine!
